Good Books about the Overviews of Mathematics

  1. Jul 29, 2013 #1
    Hi guys,

    I'm quite surprised that I'm interested in this. I've never really thought how wide and interesting Mathematics can be outside of normal plug-and-chug, computational or arithmetic based Math. Yes it can be challenging as Spivak's Calculus book shows it, but I find myself being glued on it, and curious at the same time on what else lies beyond.

    Could you guys hence recommend me books then perhaps, that serve as a short overview or introduction, and give its reader taste on different areas and branches of Mathematics? I don't mind popular science style books since I only have currently high school Math knowledge. It doesn't need to be very comprehensive or rigorous either, since I only want to expand my knowledge and interest on the subject, one that will hopefully motivate me to be always interested in Math.

    Thank You
